Cool dude wanted his picture taken.

Not my normal type of picture.This fellow came up to me at the traffic lights in Brussels yesterday and said "shoot",so I did.Bit of a grab hence the woman growing out of his shoulder which I would have liked to have avoided.





I tried to speak to him in French but he did not understand my cockney schoolboy french and went on his way.
I thought the tone of his skin was great.

E5 and 12-60.

Re: Cool dude wanted his picture taken.

Superb detail and tone there, Andy. It's almost three dimensional.

Ian's right.

It's a pity about the background, but for a 'grab shot' it's absolutely brilliant.

What a pity he didn't give you his contact details, I'm sure he would have been delighted with this picture.

Good stuff, fabulous detail and, as you say, skin tone. This E5 thing is looking good isn't it
